Amazing wings!

We normally stop at Dreamland BBQ when we come through Tuscaloosa but decided to try someplace new so we looked Archibald and Woodrow's. We had to pull down the side street and find a parking spot since the parking lot was full. The place is nothing to look at, but the food was great! I chose the... read more

This is the best BBQ in the Tuscaloosa area hands down. The restaurant is small with minimal seating but most people get the food to take home anyway. It is really, really busy during Alabama home football games so place your order ahead of time during football season.

This place has been in business for decades and little has changed except for the prices. It's a *very* small building with four or five seats at a counter and three or four tables on an enclosed porch. It's what a rib joint ought to look like. Its ribs have put it on several "Best of" lists, and presumably as... More

BBQ is wonderful, sauce and bread! Just plain small block building that cooks up good eats. Owners are great people.

I grew up in Tuscaloosa, so whenever I return to visit I always include a trip to Archibald's BBQ in Northport. Archibald's is a no frills, off the beaten path hole in the wall that excels at only one thing, hickory-smoked pulled BBQ pork and ribs. They also have BBQ chicken but I've never tried it. The BBQ sauce they... More

I visited this location for lunch after attending a workshop in Tuscaloosa. The food was good we had Barbque ribs and slaw. The food was real tasty. I do plan to go back to try the chicken in the New Year.

On a road trip through the South, we made a point of trying as many bbq places as possible. My husband and I disagreed on this one. We got the bbq pork. It came in a big pile. The only (plastic) utensil offered was a fork. My husband loved how juicy and flavorful it was. I, on the other hand,... More
